West Linn artist Carla Axtman's photograph was named the People's Choice in juried art festival.

SUBMITTED PHOTO: CARLA AXTMAN - West Linn fine art photographer Carla Axtman has won the Peoples Choice Award for her photograph The Light to Guide You Home at the Wallowa Festival of Arts held in Joseph, Oregon. This is Axtmans second Peoples Choice prize for this work at a major Oregon art event. The photograph also won the Peoples Choice award and Best of Show at the Beaverton Arts Mix in 2015. Its wonderful when my work is juried into a festival and selected for a prize by a judge, Axtman said, But when an entire community chooses my work as the one that moves them to vote, its a whole new level. It means that something Ive created spoke to people and the work resonates with them. For me as an artist, nothing is more fulfilling. Axtman had three pieces juried into the Wallowa Festival of Arts. To view her art visit
